I have the plastic gold grapes that I have used on 50th Wedding Anniversary Cakes. I've had the grapes a few years. I have an order coming up for another 50th Anniversary and they want the gold grapes. I noticed when I pulled them out this time, they are looking dull and a little "tarnished." I was wondering if anyone knows anything food safe that I can do to give them their sparkle and shine back? Thank You.

You can try spraying it with gold lustre dust from PME.

Have you tried washing them w/a bit of mild soap & warm water?
I like bashini's suggestion.

I did try cleaning them, but they have a very tarnished look and it didn't help at all.
I've never used Luster Dust and I didn't know if it would adhere to plastic or not. Guess I'll be trying it, though. Thank You. icon_biggrin.gif

luster dust is an extremely fine powder and seems to always cling to everything. so, i'm sure you'll be able to give some sparkle to your grapes.
